A Little Movember Update (challenge included!)

Posted: November 13th, 2011 | Author: | No Comments »

Hey Everybody!

Here’s the deal: We’re in the month of Movember, where men across the world grow mustaches to support research for prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives. This year, I finally took the plunge and entered my upper lip.

Here’s what it means for me: I’m growing a mustache. I shaved my beard off at the beginning of the month, and started from scratch. It’s been ugly so far, and I don’t think it’s going to get any better, but I’ve finally got a mustache worthy of a bad cop show. And I’ll have it until the end of the month.

Here’s what it means for you: You get to laugh. A lot. Because when I say ugly, I’m talking really ugly. But I’m doing it for a reason. I want to help raise money to support efforts against prostate cancer (this year’s beneficiaries are the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LiveSTRONG). I don’t know much about the disease — other than the fact that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with it — but I do know that I’d rather have a mustache than prostate cancer. If you can help me raise money, I — and my mustache — would appreciate it.

Here’s my goal: I wasn’t sure what to expect coming into this for the first time, but I’ve had a chance to see how things are playing out, and I’ve set a goal. I’d like to raise $300. It’s not much, really, just $10 a day. I only need 30 people to get on board. And I’ve already had a few generous donors pick up the tab for the first few days this month. Let’s get this show on the road!

Here’s what happens if we exceed my goal: If we reach $400, I’m gonna keep the ‘stache for an extra month. I won’t get rid of it before midnight on December 31. Think about it: any photos I take on Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Years will all feature me and my mustache. And you’ll be able to make fun of them… but only if you donate. I’m willing to look ridiculous, but you have to be willing to help!

Here’s proof that I’m willing to do it:
